Furthur was kickass at nateva, I eneded up only buying a day ticket for Friday but they gave me a weekend pass which was awesome. I loved this show tho I still listen to it in travels. Celebration through Rain and Snow was Awesome!!! Very Powerful!! John Kadelcik is amazing as with the rest of the band. The whole second set was facemelting to I loved the Going down the road!! and People who say that the encore sucked well I thought it was great follow up to Bid you goodnight which they don't play that all the time and it's a great tune. That day it was so hot and this band really pulled the love out of the audience I thought. I would go back to Nateva but a lot of people got arrested there. Pigs everywhere ext. But Furthur really fucked shit up music wise In Maine so as they say in Maine... Fuck it !!! Good music Good time and PS

To all you haters...There is no Grateful Dead without Bob Weir. If you don't know that you have not done much listening or witnessing. GET A GRIP or better yet a CLUE. Well said by the last two post's prior to this one.....I was at this show, the sunset during Miss. Half Step was unforgettable...the whole crowd looking back at the sunset and swaying to cross the RIo Grand D E O! RIP JG. Keep it Going Boys!

Subject: Bobby
I know a lot of people don't give Weir the credit he deserves, to a lot of people his guitar might sound like random choppiness, but he learned a lot from mccoy tyner, pianist that played with john coltrane alot, he often approaches guitar the way a jazz pianist comps behind a horn player, Phil said in his book Bobs playing was "whimsical and original" and you can hear how much he progesses between 69-72, he carefully places his voicings and his contribution is responsible a great deal for the deads music doing what it does, hes not a traditional lead player so a lot of people don't realize that what he plays gives the music the ability to leave the original song structure and move out into new places or transition into a song, its those jams that make dead music dead music and Bob's playing largely influences, often times very subtly influences the direction the ship is heading, watch pretty much any other rhythm guitarist play and watch and listen to him play and youll notice how much he utilizes the possibility of his instrument. The show I'd give an 8/10 somewhat generous, great great moments, but I've seen Furthur shows that takes it much Furthur than this one, had a great time though, Eyes and StS and Help>slip highlights for me

This was the first show that I had gone to and it was amazing, they all played so well, to me at least. They made for the absolute best birthday a girl could ask for. :)

Subject: You are all crazy
The Bobby bashing is absurd. He is cooler than any of you could ever wish to be. He has earned the right to sing/do whatever he wants with this music. If you dont like Bob you should have stayed at your tent and listened to STS9 or something....
As for the show, pretty good. Not one of the highpoints from Summer Tour but still fun one. Sick Cumberland, Eyes and a real nice St Stephen. US Blues, while very predictable, was very hot.

Subject: Days Between
Excellent recording and a decent show
In response the comments regarding Days Between. I fully disagree that Bob's playing of this piece ruins the entire show. In fact, I feel the complete opposite is true. Jerry Garcia is dead and Bob Weir has earned the right to perform any song from Jerry's amazing repertoire. Furthermore, I am always thrilled to hear a new interpretation of any of Jerry's songs, especially one as soulful and heart wrenching as Days Between. After listening to the song several times, I feel that it evoked a deep sadness, not because of the loss of Jerry (That sadness is a constant), but because of my own personal lost days and opportunities. To regret attending this show or bemoan the possibility of attending future shows because of a bad performance (in your opinion) from Mr. Weir, completely misses the mark of the very tune you deride. I hope love would not forsake the days that lie between. Anyways, just my humble opinion. I wish Peace and Love to all

Subject: Not a 2.
This does not strike me as the best Furthur show, but it does not deserve a 2. Nor is there anything here that justifies yet another break out of the burning Bob rage.

Frankly, after my repeated listening to the Outside Lands show, my appreciation of Bob's work has never been higher.

These guys are tough, but I hate to think this sort of bad vibe gets them down. They have nothing to prove at this point.

I am looking forward to a few more great years of Furthur shows. I suggest that these posters head over to the Picasso site and remind everyone that he was short and cannot draw a straight line. And, what was up with Van Gogh, anyway?

Just pick something that others really enjoy and let them all know what you really think...elsewhere.

You stole the words out of my mouth, 100%. I am sorry people but this show was ruined for my by Bobby. I was sitting there in the field, enjoying what started as one of the best sets of any band I'd ever seen. Smoking St. Stephen, Jack Straw (new that was coming for the fourth of July, could remain the best I may ever see/hear first hand), Dear Mr. Fantasy, Eyes of the World (looking back I feel like this started to fall apart a bit towards then end). Then we get to Days hurts to talk about it. Bobby continued to cut through the mix with the awful, shrill, ear piercingly brittle and thin guitar tone and completely arrhythmic times. I felt a lot of people around be were having a similar reaction, my friends however, all seemed to really enjoy the show and I was the only one. Listening to the show again, I realize he did chime in the the crappy tone earlier in the set but it was just so overshadowed by their brilliant playing and energy... not even noticeable at the time.
Anyways, the Days Between was a total set killer for me, turned it from the best to the worst and it continued to decline. I was fighting the urge to get up and leave the field. Then some jerk set off a mid song firework, was hoping it might spark a rebuttal from the stage... musical rebuttal as in John taking the reigns and bring the energy up a notch, not them getting on the mic and expressing disapproval haha (I've heard Bobby talk about how much he hates that, and I do too - friggin rude). Anyways, when Help on the Way > Slipknow > Franklins kicked off I got super excited expecting a full recovery only to hear Bobby's ES-335... I really felt like the rest of the band felt uncomfortable and was just trying to get through the show. I'm sure he has lost a lot of his high pitch hearing over the years at his age being in a band for so long, maybe someone just needed to let him know? :/
So I am sorry people to be so harsh, this night started off with a very fun first set including the most beautiful sunset I've ever laid eyes on, followed by the start of an absolutely amazing second set that just crashed for me... I cringed with every note/chord he played.
I am on the fence about whether I will actively be going to see them again. Phil was stunning and full of energy, Joe Russo and the drums awesome, John ... just wow. I can put up with some less than perfect playing in the background, Bobby singing Jerry parts (though I'd prefer John sing all the Jerry tunes... still, don't get me wrong I have always loved Bobby's singing), but when you are cutting through the mix with your guitar sounding like that... I just don't know. A lot of people have told me that Nateva was a crappy show for them, I saw em at Mohegan and admit it was better and did not notice his shrill tone - though the venue kind of sucked. I hope I get the opportunity to catch them on a stellar night and take back everything I said as a fluke... at any rate, NATEVA was amazing!!! Can't wait for 2011!

In terms of either depth of musical experience, number of shows actually attended and understood, or lack of worldly experience that leads one to appreciate life for what it offers. However you look at it, Gnarlyarmor just doesn't get it. He's not the first, won't be the last. His inability to fully enjoy what's offered simply leaves him a poor drifting soul in this ocean of grand music. Maybe someone should pass him the pipe. This is new music being offered to those who want it, and this show is a fine example of what the boys are now up to. Pink Floyd? I wouldn't have bet on that one...
Reviewer: earthcrisis06 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 15, 2010
Subject: Why all the Bobby bashing?
I don't exactly see where Gnarlyarmor constructs his opinion. This Furthur show sounds great, I wish I was there. I was seeing DSO at Nelson Ledges instead which was awesome of course but I would have traded it to be there considering I haven't gotten to see them this year. I've ran into a lot of self-proclaimed Bobby bashers over the years and it confuses me. Bob Weir is an integral part of the Grateful Dead; obviously. I have to defend him. He's fucking badass and underrated; great guitar player, singer and songwriter. Ratdog fucking rocks! There were times towards the end when Jerry wasn't sounding the greatest either, and he even admitted that he was no great singer. Bob has contributed to some of the Dead's best songs in my opinion...their all great songs of course though. Playin' in the Band, Sugar Magnolia, I Need A Miracle, Black Throated-Wind, Cassidy, and many others...I don't see why you even care to listen to the Dead anymore if you're going to talk so much shit about Bob. Sorry for the rant.

I've only heard this aud once, but despite a shaky Days, this seemed like a tour highlight. Hope they bring it like this at Vibes!!

I loved bob weir in the 70's but he is really bringing this group down. his guitar sounds terrible and his vocals nearly ruin classic garcia songs. why would anyone allow him to sing "days between" one of the sweetest, most moving jerry tunes ever written. and i don't think i've ever heard a worse guitar tone. even without a slide it sounds terrible. with a slide forget about it; plug your ears. it's too bad because the rest of the band sounds phenomenal, especially joe russo. what a badass. also the sound on this tour is outstanding, i've never heard aud recordings with so much bass and kick drum in them. hopefully they allow john to sing more songs and maybe just take weir's guitar away completely. seriously.

Subject: amazing!!!!
if i were these guys, i woulda been exhausted by the time nateva rolled around. ohio-> n.y. state-> maine in the three days??? based on the castle show in new york, it's amazing they had any gas in the tank for a steaming hot festival in the maine woods, only to hit the road again after the show! dang.

that said, nateva was just what maine needed. saturday w/flaming lips and sts9 was so hot and humid that a lot of people were fairly well spaced by sunday, the perfect vibe for moonalice, tedesci&trucks, furthur . . . and tuning into their sixth sense, furthur played to that energy, bobby doing a frankenstein/zombie walk onto the stage for the encore; who were the zombies, us or them or both?

half step-> cold rain couldn't have been sweeter. stephen had that distinct '76 mellow as mentioned before. days between rocked my faith a little bit initially, uh-oh, here we go . . . but bobby blew me away with his passionate delivery. the middle peak and the segue/outro jam were sublime, especially in the festival setting where the new ones are comin' as the older ones go (sigh, cosmic charlie would have fit in beautifully . . .)

i couldn't have been happier than to see my maine circles completing, gelling and spiraling to new levels. nothing to do in the heat on the 5th than to float in a cool river in the shade . . . across the lazy rivah!

very peaceful field trip . . .

Thanks to Jeff Frank for uploading this!

My wife and I had a great time - a great show a short hour and a half from home, other great bands, a beautiful 4th of July (with a killer sunset), and our anniversary to boot!

Has anybody figured out a good way to track this show without breaking up the post Jack Straw 2nd set? Adding the first three tracks of the 2nd set to the end of the 1st set is 3 minutes too long. Does anybody even burn to cds anymore?! LOL!

not that I really mind, but where'd my post go? (it was the first one). is someone curating/censoring reviews, or just a glitch?
Reviewer: dagansb - favoritefavoritefavorite - July 8, 2010
Subject: mediocre show at best/let John K sing!!!
saw them on Sunday at Coney Island and listened to most of the summer tour. thought this one was mediocre at best. as many fans have said, they need to let John K take the lead and sing the Jerry tunes. yes, it's cool to hear Phil sing after all these years, but with a guy so reminiscent of Garcia's tone as John, you'd think they would give him some leeway. that being said, these guys are wicked tight musically and, in my opinion, this is the best post-GD spin off to date. this show just didn't click with me as well as the other shows did. I was also disappointed that they did a show like this, then played a monster show in Sherman, PA. maybe it's just 'cause I had tickets for VT... =(

jack straw was great, casey was rockin, saint was awesome, mr fantasy was a treat, love bid you good night at the end with the vocals instead of just the jam

dont like the us blues, what was bobby doing on the slide, sounds like nails on a chalkboard, was a let down of an encore...but that was the only bad point of the show

Had an amazing time at Nateva, and what better way to wrap up an awesome weekend??? FURTHUR!!!!!
Honestly, I was in Lowell on 2010-06-30, and thought they may have played a little better and longer, but I have ZERO complaints about the 4th. Grate songs choices, grate atmosphere, beautiful sunset, was there with my best friend.......
Thanks Boys!!!!!!!

@ jr midtown
why have expectations about a show going into it? it's a totally new experience each time, you've just gotta get into it and and be grateful for what they play for us. it seems weird to get disappointed that they didn't play specific songs at specific times, they played what they wanted to play.

i thought they did a great show and it was a perfect celebration and finale to a first year festival. jack straw DID fuckin rip man! it was also the best dear mr fantasy i've heard, i'm usually not a fan of that song but i really enjoyed it. cold rain and snow, help on the way/slipknot/franklin's tower, eyes of the world... damn.
definitely more of a party show than the coney island ones, which totally blew my mind, but it's the fourth of july! best celebration ever. can't wait for the next one!
